Planning fees and how to pay

 Increase in planning application fees

In line with new government regulations, fees for planning applications will rise nationally by approximately 20% from Wednesday 17 January 2018.

Any applications received prior to 17 January which are found to be invalid, or remain without receipt of requested information to make them valid, will be subject to the fee increase. Information required to make the applications valid should be presented to us before 17 January 2018.

When submitting a planning application, it is essential that the correct fee is provided. A decision cannot be made without it.
